Here are 10 top tips on how to make sure you are safe when the gyms are unstaffed:
- Unstaffed document – read our unstaffed document on how to stay safe when the gym is unstaffed.
- Good health - it is crucial that you are 'fit to train'. If you have any conditions or illnesses that might be a risk, it is best to get advice on how to exercise while staying safe.
- Exercise knowledge – some equipment or exercises may be complex, especially the first time you try them. We have instructions on much of our equipment so take time to understand how to use them. If you need an induction, just speak to your gym manager to get one organised.
- Know your gym – get familiar with the layout and equipment, know where the emergency help points are (you will find them around the gym), where the emergency exits are, and where the defibrillator is located. These are extra important if you train through the night and are on your own in the gym
- Seek Help – if you ever feel unwell, injure yourself or are concerned for your wellbeing, get help! We have a remote CCTV team in place who will be able to support you. If our team aren't on hand, call for another member or use one of the emergency help points.
- Bring a friend – where you can, training with friends is not just more fun, but you'll have someone to watch your back. Of course, this may not be possible (especially if you train late at night or in the morning), so keeping other members close to hand in case you need some support is a simple alternative.
